⚫️ Why use Clean Inbox for Gmail™?

Inboxes tend to get flooded with automated mail: newsletter emails, privacy policy updates, requests to review, promotions, forum updates or service announcements, and many more.

Inbox rules / filters can be created to manage these emails. But creating good filters that do exactly what you want (filter the annoying emails and make sure you don't miss the important emails) can be difficult and time-consuming. They can also become outdated after a while. 

Clean Inbox for Gmail™ automates this for a large part. It works by creating filters that use lists of phrases that typically occur in categories that you enable. You can also automatically create such lists yourself with our AI powered filter generator. 

A note about false positives: when reading this, many people think that there may be too many false positives if it 'only' works using phrases. You may be surprised to find out how well it actually works in practice. This is because the (combination of) words that are chosen in the categories are highly specific to certain types of emails. However, if you still find that the add on has labeled an email from an important sender, you can always add this sender to the whitelist.

Give it a try! As a developer of this add on, I use it personally too and it just completely solved this annoying problem of automated marketing email I had for years.

Other add ons also require access to read, send and delete all the mails in your inbox.

We don't need this. We can only temporarily see the title and the sender of the email that you have opened, while you have the add on opened.

Use Clean Inbox for Gmail™ to manage your filters.

⚫️ Privacy

We take the privacy of our users very seriously, and we have implemented various safeguards to ensure that your data remains confidential. We do not have access to your inbox, and the data we have access to is limited to your email address, labels, and basic settings. Our security measures include encryption of data at rest and field level encryption for sensitive data, and we have a strict policy against sharing any user data with third parties.

Additionally, the information we require to function properly is limited to the title and sender of the email that you have opened, your labels, your basic settings, and your email address which is only used to save your settings. We cannot enable forward email addresses through our add-on.

⚫️ About
Clean Inbox for Gmail™ is an essential Gmail add-on that will help you achieve Inbox Zero and boost your productivity. With its powerful filtering capabilities, you can now easily manage your mailbox and clean up your inbox from unwanted and spam emails, marketing and promotional content, and junk messages. Clean Inbox for Gmail™ works with public community curated categories and custom filter categories that are powered by chatGPT. The tool is easy to use and allows you to apply labels, block unwanted senders, and manage domains and addresses with ease. The add-on is a toolbox that helps you keep your mailbox organized and clutter-free, enabling you to focus on the emails that matter most.

⚫️ Powerful features in a small jacket

Clean Inbox for Gmail is an add on that won't get in your way in the sidebar of Gmail. People receive emails on a daily basis from many digital marketing agencies and companies, often automated with workflows like Zapier, Zendesk, Boomerang, Hubspot, Pipedrive, Salesforce, Intercom. Mass mail sending tools that can do mail merge also overflow people's inboxes such as Mailchimp, Sendgrid or Mailjet, Sendinblue, Mailgun, Convertkit, CampaignMonitor, Lemlist, Yesware, Mailshake or SalesHandy are often cited as the typical true sources of trouble. This tool will make sure all (new!) marketing emails these applications create will get stopped in their tracks. People sometimes use Leavemealone, Unroll me, Mailstrom, SaneBox, Unlistr, but they work differently. These tools can be good alternatives if you want to unsubscribe from emails in bulk. They will scan through existing emails, but some of them also share data with other parties. As Codemoon, we naturally recommend another tool that we created for this purpose: To see why, check out Unsubscribe for Gmail on the Google Workspace Marketplace. To avoid new incoming emails, we recommend using this tool as it is the only tool that relies on crowd sources filter phrases that typically occur in marketing emails. This way it also prevents new incoming emails from reaching your inbox.

Fantastic app! My gmail account was flooded with spam, requiring me to sift through tons of unwanted emails to locate correspondences that I actually cared about. This app streamlined that process and I finally have more control over my inbox!

Seems pretty useless. Its a shame even when the people you do business with want to blow up your email inbox with adds and promotions. Then when you look for the most important stuff it gets berried.

i haven't delved deep into using it yet, but i couldn't wait to point this out. after reviewing their Privacy Policy and Ts&Cs, i was pleasantly surprised at the transparency and conciseness of their documents. it's commendable that they've made the effort to be crystal clear about their policies. looking forward to exploring more :)

Applied no form of Bayesian. Whatsoever. And was supposedly brought down on high with the holy incarnation of A.I. All it did was make a separate category space in the sidebar, and placed some more Labels there. Into which it ironically placed all the financial security passcode messages and Bank statement send-outs. GPT or not. You'd be hard-pressed to find even an old version of Outlook that managed to misidentify the Banking URLs... Truly Horrendous.

I was able to organize and mass delete 10,000 emails in 15 minutes. I've been trying to do searches and mass deletes for months. This is a game changer!

CIG is ok for what it does, but doesn't provide much help in assigning relevant labels for archival purposes. For example, I'd like a label where I could find all my purchase orders and payment confirmations. According to CIG Support, this functionality is limited to assigning only one of 3 labels: Allowed, Unwanted, and CleanInbox.
